Goodbye, Grandma

First of all I want to thank all the lovely people who sent me cat pictures on Twitter the other day. I really needed it.

I lost my grandma this weekend, and due to multiple circumstances, I won’t be attending the celebration of life in Florida this weekend. I know it’s the right decision, and I think Grandma would agree, but being so far away from my family makes this extra hard.

I wish I had it in me to write the kind of blog post about her that she deserves, but I am exhausted both physically and emotionally. Again, I know she would understand and tell me to take care of myself.

So instead, I’ll just share this amazing pic that my sister found from one of Grandma’s college yearbooks. Check out Flossie Peterson playing basketball. If you can, I highly encourage you to zoom in on her and look at that sparkle in her eye. She never ever lost that sparkle. That’s the Grandma I’m going to remember.
